Here's "To-do List", by Janet and Pete. The backstory is that they made the puzzle a couple years back and it was rejected by the NYT and (I think) Sun. You know why? Because it's wickedly tough.

This puzzle took Tyler Hinman about 11:50 to solve, and I finished about a minute and a half behind Tyler. Crazy tough! The Tipsy Tourney participants were solving at about 10 pm, and under the influence. You go ahead and try it earlier in the day and sober—I bet you'll struggle anyway.

Enjoy!

Yowee. 66:13. I'm not tipsy, but it is waaaay past my bedtime. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Finished at TROP / JOLLITY. And right before that I finally got "spelled Schwarzenegger". Loved it!
